5 Soft Plays for Rainy Days in East Sussex & Kent

January 8, 2019

It can be a bit of a challenge keeping the kids entertained in these wetter, colder Winter months. However it’s the perfect time of year to make the month of some of the local soft plays. We’re lucky to have several to choose from within a short distance of our home in Uckfield. I’ve put together my pick of 5 of our favourites to inspire you on those days when cabin fever starts setting in!
